I have been looking at the Nikon 400 RF, it has an 8X magnification. I have messed around with it in the store but how well does it work in the woods ? If you are in bow range is it hard to locate the subject fast ? What has been your pro's and con's? Thanks

You need not fear the nikon 400 or 440 range finders. They will work well for
you. I agree that in a perfect world they would be six or even four power magnification. However, the 8x works with no real problems. I love my 440. I must admit, though, that I also have a bushnell "sport" model(older model). This model had 4x magnification. I never had a problem with it either. I got a nikon because of slightly smaller size. My wife prefered the bushnell, so she uses it now. As for power, neither is head and shoulders above the other. Neither is optically what I would want for glassing, but I have binos for that. As for zapping a tree, rock, deer, etc. to find range, you really can't go wrong with the little nikon. You can find an object plenty quick.
Good Luck
